VISIT PHILADELPHIA® announced today that it has welcomed Reginald Archambault, general manager of The Rittenhouse Hotel, to its board of directors.
“We are pleased to have Reg join our board,” said Manuel Stamatakis, VISIT PHILADELPHIA board chairman. “He has more than 25 years of experience in the hospitality sector, and we look forward to taking advantage of his knowledge and expertise as we develop marketing plans and strategies for VISIT PHILADELPHIA moving forward.”
Archambault started his career in the hospitality industry in 1991—serving as restaurant manager at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island in Florida. He quickly moved up the ranks of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, holding senior leadership positions at The Ritz-Carlton’s San Francisco and Cleveland hotels. In 1998, Archambault made the move to Philadelphia, serving as Assistant Director of Food and Beverage for two years at the former Four Seasons Philadelphia hotel. He went on to serve as Director of Food and Beverage at Four Seasons Hotels in Nevis, West Indies; Aviara, San Diego, California and Toronto, Canada. After eight years with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Archambault held hotel manager positions at Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel and Hotel Bel-Air, both in Los Angeles. He made the move back to Philadelphia in 2012 to assume his current role as general manager of The Rittenhouse Hotel.
Archambault is currently a Philadelphia resident and lives in Chestnut Hill with his wife Michelle and son Thomas. A native of Providence, R.I., he earned his Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Rhode Island.
VISIT PHILADELPHIA’s board members are leaders in business, hospitality, government and academia and include representatives of Governor Tom Wolf, Mayor Jim Kenney and City Council President Darrell Clarke.
